Get ready to make it .RED hot!
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Global registry services provider Afilias
turns up the heat! Afilias today announced April 17, 2014, as the
general availability launch date of the .RED generic top-level domain
(gTLD). As an unrestricted domain, .RED names are available to be
registered by anyone, anywhere in the world.
The .RED domain brings the heat to everything you're passionate about!
Like red lipstick or a little red sports car, the color red brings
intensity to whatever it touches. As British psychologist Nicholas
Humphrey, author of Seeing Red: A Study in Consciousness, once
said in The New York Times, "If you want to make a point, you
make it in red."
The .RED domain now brings this drama to your Web address.
Share your interests, causes and points of view on a .RED site. Want to
make a bold fashion statement? Use .RED. In love? Show it with .RED.
Fighting evil? Do it in .RED. When you need to heat up your Web
presence, no other domain will do: Make it .RED hot!
"The .RED domain brings fire, spice and excitement to the formerly cold
and gray computer world of the Internet," said Roland LaPlante, Senior
Vice President and CMO, Afilias. "Whether it's being used in the context
of a political protest or Valentine's Day, red always stands for
passion. The .RED domain will now let individuals and businesses extend
that passion to the right of the dot."
.RED domains can be registered for up to 10 years at a time. Many
registrars offer website building, emal and other services along with
.RED domains to make your online presence work exactly as you envision
The .RED general availability period opens at 16:00:00 UTC on April 17,
2014. You can learn more about .RED and find a registrar for your .RED
domain at http://red.afilias.info.
